Have you ever had a dream to visit the stunning town of Sorrento? Let me take you on a virtual journey, discovering Italy at its best!
Sorrento is a coastal town in south western Italy, facing the Bay of Naples, on the Sorrentine Peninsula. Perched atop cliffs that separate the town from its busy marinas, it’s known for sweeping water views and Piazza Tasso, a cafe-lined square. The historic centre is a warren of narrow alleys, home to the Chiesa di San Francesco, a 14th-century church with a tranquil cloister.
Every trip to this southern Italian city, should start with a wander around the rambling alleys of Old Sorrento. Perfect for an enjoyable afternoon’s exploration, these alleys and lanes contain thousands of years of history, and highlights, which makes it so great about the Italian culture.
July is the best period for swimming and other water activities in Sorrento, as the sea temperature at around 25.8°C (78.4°F). On average the rain falls for only 4 days in July.
